Designed by world famous British architect, Lord Foster, Ocean Emerald’s distinctive curved frame has given her an excellent reputation on the charter market. Designed with extensive floor-to-ceiling windows, the amount of light reaching her spacious interior has been enhanced dramatically.
Delivered in 2009 by Italian shipyard Rodriguez Yachts, the 41.1m (136’5) motor yacht was completely refitted in 2015 by the present owner, which included a new minimalist interior, a Jacuzzi installation on the sun deck, upgraded AV systems, brand new sports and leisure equipment as well as an extensive engineering refit. Throughout the summer of 2016, she also underwent a new paint job.
Ocean Emerald accommodates up to 12 guests in five luxurious cabins. Located on the main deck is the master suite, which has the added luxury of his and hers private balconies and full-height glazed paneling that allows natural light to penetrate in and sea views to be enjoyed from all angles. Aft of the lower deck are two VIP suites and forward of this level are the remaining en suite guest cabins with Pullman berths.
With an aim to integrate the natural environment into the design of this sophisticated yacht, Foster’s holistic approach has meant that a sense of continuity between the inside and out has been achieved. Designed with a focus on family life, the tri-deck yacht has 30% greater square footage both inside and outside, making Ocean Emerald the best value for money for a yacht in this range.
Her large open decks complemented by a continuous wide aft staircase offers astounding unconstrained views and freedom to move around the decks. Forward of the vast sun deck is her newly installed Jacuzzi that is surrounded by inviting sun pads and boasts the best views in the house. With a bar and a sociable seating arrangement, this is the perfect spot for enjoying the midday rays or cocktails at sundown.
Twin 1400hp Caterpillar engines power Ocean Emerald to reach maximum speeds of 18 knots and cruise comfortably at 14 knots, whilst maintaining absolute comfort on board. She also features at anchor stabilisers, which reduce roll motion when stationery allowing guests to have an unforgettable experience.
